A suspected member of a three-man inter-state kidnap gang, Boodoo Musa Alhaji, has been arrested by the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Kwara State, for alleged kidnapping and murder.

The gang had allegedly kidnapped an eighty-year-old man, Alhaji Abba in Eruwa, Oyo state, collected ransom and later killed the victim.

Speaking on the development, the Public Relations Officer of the NSCDC, Kwara command, Olasunkanmi Ayeni, said that the crime was committed in Eruwa, Oyo while the suspect was arrested at Banni community in the Kaiama local government area of Kwara State at the weekend.

The NSCDC spokesperson, who described the suspect as an ex-convict, said that he would be transferred to the Ibadan headquarters of the command for further investigation and prosecution.

“He was arrested after sharing information with members of the public and sister security agencies. All other details like the ransom and other arrested suspects are with the Police in Oyo state”, he added.

In an interview with newsmen, the suspect said he is a farmer and not a kidnapper.

“I was arrested because the victim had told one Alhaji Isiaka, a member of vigilante group in the area before the development, that I should be arrested if anything happened to him”, he added.
